Manifest x Decipher x X-Facta Release ‘Popular’

In preparation for the release of his upcoming mixtape Open Bars, Manifest has released another track. This one features Decipher along with X-Facta on the beat.

These guys went in hard on this one. It’s good to see some MC’s can still keep it lyrical now a days. I’m also digging how nearly the whole east coast is represented on this one; from NY to Philly to VA. Good stuff.

This is the fourth song to be released off the mixtape (after ‘My Way‘,”Sunny 808’s“, and ‘Cube Runners‘. Sounds pretty good so far!

Lyrics after the jump.

(Manifest)
However which way i bring it, it’s smooth with no ridges
so move, move.. and i’ll show you my new improved maneuvers, hello
I’m very barracuda – deep, i’m very freddy kreuger ready to do it (do what?)
come get you in your sleep.
how can he be so uncanny this Mani Mani?
and they try to dismantle this collab with Danny, but wet they panties
can’t you see me, I’m reclining while you’re climbin up
crowding up your monitors, forming lines like taco trucks
I’m popular..like Sinatra in the 40’s
I’m just knockin down the doors, here to get mines
while you wait in the guest line
I’m so ahead that i caught up right behind ya,
the type to turn wutever into bombs like Mcguyver, boom!
I’m a rapper gone rogue, steppin gladly off road
it’s awful bein so bland right? yeah i thought so
let me be the one to shed light on dead life, show u different angles
X-Facta on the track, let’s go

*Ask me who I am, must ya? requested for me, did ya?
this one is for the soul, peep the whole picture
(you know me) I’ll speak my mind, no one ever does it like I
(you know me) Put the rest aside, I just get better with time

I really need this and so do you, music’s therapeutic
influencing you right through it, speakin real talk I’m more than fluent
i’m movin more like fluid, on-going yall know this
touchin all grounds like roaches, you gonna get roasted fool
I’m so potent, ooo i give you motion sickness, never trippin over business
like artists often do
the stress just heightens, so I packed an extra mic and
every single word i manifest you best decipher

(Decipher)
Decipher manifest words, understand that if worst
comes to worst, we got a plan for this, first
things first, get X Facta on an MPC
tell him clear his cerebellum, let it empty, breathe
see what an MC see, a lot of them see me
the MVP, of course they’re gonna envy me
your friend DC gets busy when you send me beats
so take the .wav and compress it into an mp3
and i’mma give it all I got, I was given not a lot
got me digging out the ditches, now I’m getting to the top
couldn’t fit into the box, I was different, I was not
like other chinks, they study, think, while I’m listening to Pac
couldn’t piss into a pot, I took what I had to
looking right at you with attitude, you looking like statues
looking back at me, rookies will ask me what it took to get nasty
Hennessy helped, everything else got pushed to the backseat

*Ask me who I am, must ya? requested for me, did ya?
this one is for the soul, peep the whole picture
(you know me) I’ll speak my mind, no one ever does it like I
(you know me) Put the rest aside, I just get better with time

See what you saying Mani, See, we became a family
we be the favorites, man, he still Peter, my name still Danny
speak with some flavor, can we? baby, it’s bound to work
never seen rappers out this world that’s so down to earth
(see, i) found the words, wrap them round the sounds you heard
I get high like pounds of purp, now I’m found around the birds
a profound amount of work goes into what I’m into
butter instrumentals, paper I put the ink to. Hiphop
